The #1 Songs 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, And 50 Years Ago This Week

It seems like just last week I was playing[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] The Bangles[/lastfm] Walk Like an Egyptian on KKFR and then Y-95. It’s still one of the catchiest songs of the 80’s – granddaughter Aly loves it and sings along, so the appeal is still there today.    Wait’ll you see (literally) what topped the charts 5, 10,  15, 20, and 25 years before that.  You’ll be singing along with those songs too.  And one of the artists she played at Woodstock) is in town to sing her biggest hit live.  Can you guess who it is?
